The Delaware River runs close to the Philadelphia International Airport, two refineries, an interstate highway and major railroad lines.
Boeing will design, develop, install and maintain a suite of surveillance and monitoring systems to detect potential threats to key resources on the river.
The company will also train law enforcement and emergency services personnel to use the suite.
“Boeing understands the critical importance of protecting ports and waterways, ” said Boeing Network & Space Systems President Roger Krone. “We are committed to continuing to direct our company’s experience and resources toward protection of this nation’s infrastructure and the free flow of commerce.”
